One of two enumerators in the ongoing 2021 Population and Housing Census exercise has met his untimely death at Saaka in the Upper East Region.
Faisal Issah, and Gifty Abane, were involved in a road crash on Wednesday morning, June 30, 2021, while heading to Googo and Tambiugu communities in Zebilla.
The two who were on a motorcycle ran into a broken-down trailer parked on the road.
A nurse, Faisal Issah, died on the spot while Gifty Abane, a teacher by profession, sustained some injuries and is currently receiving treatment at the Zebilla District hospital.
The remains of Faisal Issah have since been released to his family for burial in line with the traditions of Islam.
Following the incident, colleagues of the deceased boycotted the day’s counting exercise in support of their colleagues.
The 2021 housing and population census commenced on the night of Sunday, June 27, 2021. It will end on July 11, 2021.
